The City-based mortgage and insurance brokerage will launch in September and the directors are keen to attract residential, buy-to-let, refurbishment and bridging mortgage customers.
The adviser firm will be headed up by Antonio Michael (pictured) with Oliver Hines-Lloyd serving as director.
Michael’s C.V includes time as head of private office at Enness, Largemortgageloans.com, John Charcol and Countrywide, while Hines-Lloyd has served at Enness and deVere Group.
The firm is looking for a typical loan size of £500,000, according to reports, and referrals from industry professionals including estate agents, solicitors, tax advisers, and accountants.
The broker is looking to charge a fee of 0.65 per cent per transaction and Michael said: “I decided to launch Articus Finance to focus on residential and bridging finance.
“We feel the need for bridging finance will increase over the next year given the political uncertainty and this is where my knowledge and relationships with key lenders will allow me to act fast for our clients.”
